Doug Levey


In December 2011, I accepted a permanent position at the National Science Foundation and resigned from the University of Florida.  My "" email address will continue to work for at least six months.  I will not be accepting any new students but look forward to remaining in contact with former students.  


I am an evolutionary ecologist.  My students and I study lots of topics, most related to tropical ecology and plant-animal interactions.  I teach an Avian Biology course and direct SPICE (Science Partners in Inquiry-based Collaborative Education), a training program that places graduate students in disadvantaged middle schools.  You can find out more about these activities and my lab by exploring the links on the left.
